Conductor Slip Ring Assembly Used In Laboratory Equipments

Conductor slip ring as a precision rotary electrical joint that allows the transfer of power and signal from a stationary to a rotating platform,  it can be used in any electromechanical system that requires unrestrained, intermittent or continuous rotation while transmitting power and / or data. Also can improve mechanical performance, simplify system operation and eliminate damage-prone wires dangling from movable joints.  Slip rings not only used in well-known industrial field, but also plays an important role in a wide range of laboratory testing equipments and instruments.

In laboratories, there are always many various rotating test tables/index tables for performance testing, speed testing, lifetime testing or other purposes. Conductor slip ring assemblies are often required in these complex systems to fulfill the signal, data and power transfer mission from a stationary to a rotating platform. And these slip ring units are usually used with sensors, encoders, thermocouples, strain gages, cameras, gyroscopes and junction boxes.

For example a thirty-two pass conductor slip ring assembly which used for a rotating table, two separate 15 amp power circuits supply power for the table, two coax circuits used for video signals, twenty-eight circuits offer data, Ethernet and control signals. As the its special application, it requires a very small size and low electrical noise and start torque, so the inside wiring arrangement of slip ring in design stage is very important, and all rings and brushes must be machined very smoothly to ensure lowest friction and wearing.

Model Selection

A slip ring is an electromechanical device which in combination with brushes that allows the transmission of power and electrical signals from a stationary to a rotating structure.
